About the event

Spend a day in our studio learning how to make bright, modern jewellery pieces using sterling silver and high quality resin. This is a fun and fast-paced workshop with an emphasis on design, geometry, scale and colour. To get the most out of the day, you'll need to have some previous soldering, filing and sanding experience.

The resin we use is certified non-toxic, it has no VOCs, no fumes and no solvents. Unlike other fast-curing resins that contain hazardous compounds, this resin takes a few days to fully cure. So your resin pieces will stay in the studio at the end of the workshop, but will be ready to pick up just a few short days later.

What the day includes:

  • A full day workshop in a small group setting
  • Lunch and refreshments throughout the day
  • All tools and materials including sterling silver, resin and colours
  • A contemporary, clean and safe work space in which to make your pieces
  • A glass of champage (or soft drink) to celebrate your creations at the end of the day!

What you will learn and create:

  • How to design pieces that are best suited to resin
  • How to mix resin, apply colours and remove bubbles
  • How to finish your resin pieces to a professional standard
  • You will make 2-3 pieces of jewellery, depending on your skill level and the complexity of your designs

What to wear:

  • Casual, comfortable clothes and closed in shoes
  • If you have long hair, please wear it back
  • Bring your reading glasses as it is detailed work
  • Your hands will get dirty, so please don’t wear any precious rings or clothing

About your facilitator: Zvoni Hodak

Hello! My passion for making jewellery began in my early 20’s in Melbourne while working as a studio assistant for a renowned jewellery designer. Then, following a career in business consulting in Canberra, I returned to jewellery making in 2011 when I moved to the beautiful Southern Highlands with my husband and creative collaborator, Phil. I use both traditional silversmithing techinqiues and newer digital technologies to produce clean, modernist pieces. I love working with natural gemstones and silver palladium, a precious metal that doesn't tarnish over time and provides a beautiful bright white canvas for my designs. I look forward to sharing my passion for jewellery making with you!
